Kisumu Day has lodged an appeal against Agoro Sare for fielding an ineligible player during the just concluded KSSSA Nyanza regional football finals.
In a letter written by Mr. Agutu the institution team manager dated July 25, 2023, addressing the Secretary Nyanza Region Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSA), he says Agoro Sare fielded a repeater who represented another institution last year.
“The player Godfrey Omondi played in KSSA Championship in 2022 for Dagoretti High School as a form three and in 2023 he is playing for Agoro Sare wearing jersey number 6 also as a form three student,
“He is therefore a repeater which is against KISSA Constitution part 11 (e). As a result, he is an illegible player in this year’s championship as a form three student,” the letter read in part.
KSSA Championship rulers on the eligibility of the participant 11 section (d) state that any repeater who has sat national exams will be governed by the 90 days rule.
Consequently, section (e) says that any repeater at any level shall not be eligible to play in the year of repeating.
At the same time, Mr Agutu now demands that Agoro Sare be stripped off their win and be declared null and void.
In the concluded KSSA Nyanza Region games, Agoro Sare took the mantle in soccer in boys as Lwak Girls dominated in the whole region.
Onjiko High School won the boys’ Volleyball Nyanza Region as Nyakach girls escaped as the winner in girls.
Also, Onjiko High School took the win in basketball as Ototo High School led in the girls’ category.
St. Mary’s Yala won the Rugby Boys Nyanza Region.
